Cloning
Cloning The new breakthrough of cloning is a great advance in biotechnology. The use of cloningcan be both beneficial and harmful to society. There are many reasonable ways to use themethods of cloning. For instance, the use for medical purposes can be helpful in casessuch as producing animals with human body systems that could be used for transplantingorgans. It can be a valuable asset to our society in that way. It can be harmful if it isopened for use in the general public because it could c
The Atmospheric Ozone Layer
The Atmospheric Ozone Layer
The Atmospheric Ozone Layer The stratospheric ozone layer exists at altitudes between about 10 and 40km depending on latitude, just above the tropopause. Its existence is crucial for life on earth as we know it, because the ozone layer controls the absorption of a portion of the deadly ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. UV-A rays, including wavelengths between 320 and 400nm, are not affected by ozone. UV-C rays between 200 and 280nm, are absorbed by the other atmospheric constituents besides oz

Nucleotides The foundation of life as we know it is composed of nucleic acids. Researchers believe that these fundamental building blocks were first formed three billion years ago when the first forms of elementary life began to appear on earth. Nucleic acids have at least two functions. The first of these functions is to serve as a means of passing on hereditary characteristics, and the second is to instruct the cells in the production of specific proteins. Nucleic acids by nature are rather c

Arguments for the restriction of human genetic engineering, and specifically germ-line enhancement, are reviewed. Arguments are divided into those which are fundamental matters of faith, or bio-Luddite arguments, and those which can be addressed through public policy, or gene-angst arguments. The four bio-L
FRAGILE X SYNDROME
FRAGILE X SYNDROME
FRAGILE X SYNDROME Fragile X Syndrome is an inherited genetic condition associated with mental retardation. It is caused by a mutation of the X chromosome. Fathers cannot pass the disease onto their sons, because females always give an x chromosome where a man gives either an x or a y. If a man gives a y chromosome, then the result is a boy baby, and since the disease is only carried in the x chromosome, a boy can only inherit this disease from his mother. A girl, on the other hand,

Mitosis Cells can divide, and in unicellular organisms, this makes more organisms. In multicellular organisms, cell division is used for growth, development, and repair of the organism. Cell division is controlled by DNA, but exact copies of the DNA must be given to the daughter cells (note use of “mother” and “daughter”). Bacteria reproduce by a simple process called binary fission. They have one chromosome which is attached to the cell membrane. This chromosome replicates, then the two copies

Though scientists began to experiment with the idea of cloning decades ago, the public was not fully brought to attention on the subject until the declaration that Scottish scientists had successfully cloned a sheep named Dolly in 1997. Controversy soon flew as the morality of cloning was discussed in all religions and societies In the Dolly experiment there were 277 cell fusions, resulting in 29 that began to grow and w

Human Cloning is Wrong I bet many of you have seen Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Multiplicity, or many of the other movies that describe cloning. Most of what you see in these movies is false. What you don't know if that cloning could be dangerous, to the clone and to our society as a whole. It's unethical to have a human clone. What about identity? Humans are guaranteed the right to their own personality. What would happen if we overrode those rights by giving them someone else's genetic identity?

In this paper we shall attempt to follow Hume's arguments against Deism as Someone knowable from the wake He allegedly makes as He passes. This kind of Deism he lays to rest. Then, digging deeper, we shall try our hand at a critique of his critique of religion, of resurrecting a natural belief in God. F

DNA has all the needed information to create the species from which it came from. DNA consists of genes which are coded messages in the DNA. These messages control the cell to be what it was intended to be for example a brain cell or a skin cell. All cells in an organism have the same exact DNA sequence unless it has been mutated. The reason why they all have the same DNA is because they all came from one cell, the embryo which replicated itself and these new daughter cells replicated themselve

In Michael Crichton's novel, The Andromeda Strain, several basic biological concepts are discussed. These concepts are those of defining life and how life operates. What determines if something is living? Does it contain certain substances? Does it act in a certain way? Can life be something that we have not experienced on this earth? Crichton asks these questions in this what if? novel. The question of determining if something was living was addressed mid way through the novel using several in

Cloning: Is It Right? The biological definition of a clone is an organism that has the same genetic information as another organism or organisms (Cloning, 1997). From this definition and from information about the science behind cloning, my current view on cloning is that it is ethical. This statement ignores information about how we can misuse cloning and what consequences occur when the procedure is unsuccessful. I currently do not think cloning should be used until it is perfected. I doubt

Sometimes it is hard to tell who a person really is because of circumstantial events and factors that other people use to identify a person. Sometimes a person has very little control over how he or she is identified because identity can depend less on whom or what someone is than on the events used to identify that person.

Cancer and many manic-depressive diseases among others can be resolved through the human genome project, but there are moral and ethical issues awaiting resolution. Despite the urgency to further the research in the human genome research project, there are many problems with other scientists. Many scientific
